AirForce has kicked it up a notch with their new baffle system, which makes the Condor SS quieter.
The AirForce Condor delivers from 600 fps to a rip-snorting 1300 fps (in .177), and it's recoilless! Accurate (1" at 50 yards) and powerful, this PCP offers extreme flexibility. It has an 18" Lothar Walther barrel (1:16 twist). You can also buy 12" and 24" barrels. Change-outs are easy and don't require any special tools, but the gun will be unsilenced. Built in the USA.
NOTE: The .20 cal. pellets are slightly longer than the .22 cal. pellets of the same weight. Therefore, they drag in the barrel a little more and produce lower velocities. The quoted figures (showing the .20 cal. gun shooting slower than the .22 cal. gun) are actual test figures and are correct.
You'll need an adapter to fill the reservoir with air. The type of adapter depends on how you plan to fill your gun. A scuba tank will require a different adapter than a hand pump or carbon fiber tank. If you use a hand pump, the type of adapter you need depends on the brand of hand pump you use.
Carrying an extra filled tank when shooting in the field is a lot easier than carrying a scuba or carbon fiber tank for refills.
There are lots of ways to configure this gun, including rail-mounted accessories (coin-slot screws for each changeout). You can choose the scope, laser, flashlight, night vision equipment, extra tanks, quick-detach fiber-optic sights and attachments for the type of refilling unit you plan to use. If you replace the barrel with a longer one, the gun will not be silenced.
The .177-caliber Condor SS has a special tank valve spring. If you plan to attach other caliber barrels to your gun, you may want to buy a tank made for the other calibers (.20, ,22 & .25 calibers use the same tank). If you use the .177-calIber tank with the other smallbore calibers, you'll experience a drop of 50-100 fps in those calibers. However, if you buy the .20, .22 or .25 caliber but plan to also attach a .177-caliber barrel, you must buy a .177-caliber air tank. If you don't, the tank valve spring will not close fast enough, and all your air will be dumped.
Does not come with sights or a refill clamp. If you plan to put a scope on your gun, you won't need the open sights. The refill clamp is needed if you're going to fill your gun's air reservoir with a scuba tank.

Things I liked:It seemed powerful and accurate for the one shooting session it lasted. Things I would have changed:Just about everything. What others should know:Complete junk. The finish is very easily scratched. The first time I went to shoot it, the tiny plastic screw that serves as the indicator for the power adjustment fell out. Then after having shot it one session, the air gauge on the side of the tank blew apart when I went to refill it and the tank no longer holds pressure. Not even close to the quality I expected to get for the price. Now I own a very expensive piece of scrap aluminum.
Things I liked:very accurate, nice trigger,easy to load, Things I would have changed:power setting is very hard to move What others should know:shoots at 1035 fps on #3 setting with full tank forget the hand pump unless your a world class weight lifter
Things I liked:First off, it's splendid to have such a fine airgun that was made in the USA. Fit, finish, functionality: all great! I think i'm going to have a wonderful time with this airgun. Looking forward to the versatility of accessorizing it and maybe getting another barrel or two to add calibers to the platform. Things I would have changed:Nothing yet. What others should know:Condor doesn't look or feel like any other air rifle that I have, so expect it to seem just as futuristic as you might guess if you get one. Think Flash Gordon!!
